Salted popcorn breaks marriage apart

Would you like anything else with that? A soda? Candy? A divorce?

A Wisconsin man caused a scene at a movie theater after his wife allegedly put salt on their popcorn without his permission and angrily declared their marriage to be over, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Police arrived at Marcus Majestic Cinema in Brookfield, a town 12 miles west of Milwaukee, after reports of a domestic situation stemming from a snack purchase gone awry.

According to a police report, the wife purchased the popcorn herself and was instructed by her husband not to salt it. Having paid for it, she decided to do it anyway.

The husband, salty in more ways than one, accused his wife of being “unfaithful” and doing “things” behind his back, the Sentinel reported.

He reportedly declined to see the movie despite already having purchased the tickets. His wife saw the film without him, then refused to let him drive home, telling police that he drives too fast when he is angry.

The husband, however, would not get in the car, prompting her to call the police.

Police said the wife never felt threatened at any point, and only called the cops for assistance on how to handle the unpleasant situation.

It is unclear whether divorce proceedings have begun.
